Hobkin Worries: Sick Skunk

Worried about Hobkin. Noticed the lil guy was breathing quite hard last night—almost panting but not quite—and when I put my ear against his chest, I could hear a tiny squeak, like really quiet whining. But his appetite was good, so we didn’t call the emergency vet.

This morning he was still breathing too hard and he was wheezing slightly. It’s probably just a cold, but I’m having fosteronfilm take him to the vet today.

      Thanks, sweetie. I’m betting it’s nothing serious. But he’s never even had a cold before, not to mention he’s a senior skunk now, so I don’t want to take any chances.

  5. Good luck.

    My pet rat had symptoms like that and I didn’t take her in. Her story wasn’t good. But you are taking in Hobkin, and his story will be.
